Apparently being a smart ass is genetic

The other day I was getting our gear together for an outing, and I asked Liam what he would like me to pack in his bento (lunch box).

He said "Food"

If that doesn't sound just like my father, I don't know what does. (Liam couldn't have learned it from him - my father passed away 2 years ago).

I asked Liam to be a little more specific, so he said "Peanups [peanuts], cheese and food"

So Peanuts, cheese, and food it was.

Just getting around to posting this...

Isn't my little elf a cutie? Rhys was 2 months old when this picture was taken. There's a lot more baby chub on those legs now! (She's now 6 months old).

So, the details... The red 7 gypsies gaffer tape came with a tag tied on with jute. Well, I had to grab that jute and stitch it on my page - it was crying out for it!

I added these little rain dots from Kaiser Craft to the letters in my title. It's a shame you can't see them in the full shot. Just a fun little bit of texture. (BTW - "Lutin" is Elf in French.)

Supplies used (graciously supplied by Paws On Scrapbooking):
  • PP - Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, oh yeah, and a piece of Bo-Bunny sticking out of the right-hand side.
  • gaffer tape (& jute!) - 7 gypsies
  • letter stickers - My Mind's Eye
  • rain dots - Kaiser Craft

Added to the kit:
  • holly & trim - Making Memories
  • ink - Ranger (of course!)
  • photo corners - 3L
  • marker - Steadtler Triplus Fineliner

8 Hours of Bliss

Guess who slept through the night last night?

Ah, sleep - how I've missed you, my friend.

Shooting coffee through my nose...

So. Finally got to watch last Friday's episode of Battlestar Galactica. When they named a certain baby-to-be, I pretty near shot my coffee through my nose.

Please Stand By...

Why no new posts for the last couple of weeks? Good question. And I actually have a (reasonably) good answer!

Teething baby. *sigh* Baby don't sleep, don't nobody sleep.

Which means my blog, among other things, has not been at the top of my list. However, I'm working on installing a new template, and a new look. There may be a few glitches before I'm done, but we'll get there. Some of my sidebar items may disappear in the interim, but they'll be back. And I'm going to get back to regular blogging this week. I have some projects to show, and a tutorial to post as well.

Thanks for sticking with me!
